I entered a similar image five years
ago, but it didn't quite feel
right to me. Thanks to recent
interest in it, I took up the
challenge, and this time I feel good
about the quality of this image.

Wow, what a response. The image
is made of several layers. First,
getting the stars is a process in itself,
with a ten minute exposure. Then
I took photos of car tail lighs going
down a road at night. That's fun!
and dangerous. The moon was shot
at 420mm on a telescope. Then I just
built up the image according to
a concept I had. Thanks! #4501020

Thanks Lisa and Susan. This was a commision by someone who had seen the
older and cruder version of it. that
was really pretty horrible. but I had
learned enough Pshop to work it out.
And get paid, too! #7177620
